Patchwork Times and my ramblings will continue in 2016. There are sometimes comments that folks came to Patchwork Times because of the quilting. Some want more of it, some understand that things change. The blog actually started back in 2004 as Sunshine Quilts. There were quilting posts but there were many posts about my every day life. This was a picture from our little house in town about this exact time of the year in 2004 — 11 years ago. Some of you have been reading that long!
Life was different back then . . getting Chad out of high school was a real accomplishment! In May, it will be 10 years since he graduated from high school.
I think the look on his face tells you where Addie gets her attitude!
Back in 2006, Speck was not an old, gray haired dog. He has always loved sleeping in the sun.
Ahh . . looking back . . that’s why I love blogging. As Patchwork Times continues, it will be about whatever I’m doing, whatever Vince and I are doing, what we’re cooking, what we’re planting, what we’re planning and what I’m doing whether it’s sewing, knitting, hooking or spinning.
Specific list type items that will continue:
- Stash Report – The Stash Report will continue on Sunday but it will be a combined fabric/yarn stash report. You may add a fabric and yarn report or either – whatever suits you. Remember that we do not need to know how much yardage, skeins or bolts we’re starting with. All we really need to track is what we add and what we use so we’ll know at the end of the year whether we’ve used more than we’ve added. Your goal may be to add more fabric or yarn . . that’s fine. My goal is to work from the stash. I think I have that mastered with fabric and I’m hoping to do better in 2016 with yarn.
- Design Wall – The design wall post will continue on Monday. Even though I don’t have much to contribute, I LOVE seeing what everyone else is working on.
- On the Needles – This will continue on Fridays. Again, I love seeing what everyone is working on. It’s always helpful if you tell us what pattern and what yarn you’re using, but that surely isn’t required.
One thing I’d like to do, and we’ve already set up the Hitofude Knit Along, would be a few Knit Alongs if there’s any interest. 6 will be a great year for all of you!
OK . . who’s with me in 2016? 🙂
